A décor theme of African seasons is used throughout the hotel with rooms depicting the various seasons of Summer using bright African sun yellow, Winter rooms are a white and blue combination illustrating the snow peaked mountains and blue dusky skies present in the Golden Gate Winter. While Spring is celebrated in brilliant blues and lush greens, and Autumn with warm orange, red and rich browns.
